A moment of silence

This hurts.

We all get down on our country at times. The laws, the legislation, the insanity of it all. There seems to be a giant divide between “us” and “them.” None of us want it to be this way, but like an oversize family, we get to the point where we can’t even sit down together without someone getting into an argument.

Then something horrible happens, –  9/11, Newtown  – and we face one another in silence.

It happened again.

Three people dead, another 141 injured, 17 critical. One of the dead is an eight-year old child. 

For whatever purpose a demented mind hoped to achieve, these lives have forever been changed. If the goal was to drive us apart, it does just the opposite. We are drawn together in support of one another.

We as a nation mourn the loss and suffer the pain together.

Please join me in a moment of silence in respect for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
